In honor of the kickoff of summer we hosted our first ever Custom Logos Ice Cream Social last Friday prior to Memorial Day Weekend. Ice cream socials here in the United States date back to 1744 when Maryland governor Thomas Bladen served ice cream for a dinner party. That was followed by the first ice cream social in the White House in 1802, presided over by the 3rd U.S. president, Thomas Jefferson. As ice cream became more common to the public in the 1800s, many organizations including schools and churches adapted the idea. Fast forward a couple hundred years and our staff thoroughly enjoyed carrying on the tradition!
